Starting in the 60’s, Gary was playing the clubs at night, and working at a Houston auto body shop through the day. He stuck with his music and it paid off. Gary has twenty three top ten hits, with five of them at number one.
In 2012, he celebrated fifty years in music with a CD, “Best of the Best”, another CD followed in 2014, another in 2016 and his thirty third studio album was released earlier this year.
He is in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and the Houston Music Hall of Fame.
You know Gary better by his middle name, Gene.
